Because of a big problem I had this weekend, I need to do an emergency backup. I'm basically just creating a tar file of my /home directory.

My question: how big can a file get on FreeBSD? This tar.gz file is already 5G. Hard drive space is no problem, but as I'm watching this file grow, I'm wondering if there is some file size limit that is going to make this long backup abort.

Naturally, that will happen when the backup is almost complete :-)
